Well, then I'm extra confused. 

I uninstalled both bind, bind-chroot and bind-utils as well. 
I then re-installed bind-chroot and bind-utils, copied my files over, changed 
the permissions to named.named and it worked.

I can't tell you why I'm having so many problems but if I am, I'm guessing I 
can't be the only one. Makes me wonder how many just plain quit and you never 
hear/know about it.
